"We are excited about the potential gains in efficiencies and in retailer satisfaction that will result from our upgrading to Lapis’ gemIntelligence platform," said Paul Mandeville, Assistant Executive Director/Director of MIS at the Massachusetts Lottery. "Lapis’ expertise and the flexibility of their Agile Platform™ supported the rapid customization of gemIntelligence, including adding many new features such as instant ticket real time ordering; all in just two months.”
The Director of the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Commission told the Public Safety Committee that the slot-style games violate their two-decade-old compact, which gives Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods casinos exclusivity of all slot machine gambling in Connecticut. He added the games "would relieve the tribe from their ability to pay 25 percent" of the yearly revenue.  Senate Bill 80, sponsored by State Sen. Dante Bartolomeo, would ban internet sweepstakes cafes.
10% of equity sold for 212 million pounds ($353 million), which makes the market value of this online gambling company $3.53 billion.
“Having this GSA Certification is a significant achievement, because it signals to our customers and the industry that our SGVideo System meets the highest standards for interoperability and efficiency,” said Brennen Lawrence, Senior Vice President of North American Gaming for Scientific Games.
When Springfield, Mass., needed to choose who would build its first casino, the city hired an outside adviser to help with the process.  The consulting firm Shefsky &Froelich recommended the deal go to MGM Resorts International. At the same time, the consulting firm also was working as a registered lobbyist in Illinois for MGM Resorts.  The arrangement highlights an often-overlooked trend as more cities and states embrace legalized gambling across the country: Private companies are being hired to write regulations and vet casinos, even as the same firms work the other side of the fence, helping casinos enter new markets and sometimes lobbying for their interests.  But letting consulting companies with deep ties to the gambling industry decide how casinos are run — and who runs them — is a significant departure from how established gambling states, including Nevada and New Jersey, do things.
